4:00 pm
much. it marks the end of the catholic churches year of faith. the next hour of "news room" begins right now. hello, everyone. you are in the cnn news room. i'm martin savidge. nice to be with you. no weekend down time in geneva. not this weekend, not when a historic deal is within reach. twice today, secretary of state john kerry met with counter parts from europe and iran. they are hammering out the final details to an agreement for lighter sanctions on iran for a significant restriction on the nuclear program. the few final details, well, they are always the problem. and the difference right now between success and a breakdown. let's get to geneva and talk to jim. jim, it's after 1:00 in the morning. we spoke with you several hours
4:01 pm
ago. negotiating sessions still going on. where does this deal stand? >> reporter: well, martin, i want to tell you there's a resolution here. as you say, it's past 1:00 in the morning. they are still meeting. got word the diplomats got together again following the second meeting. one of the diplomats say they are 98% to a deal. if the final 2% is where the key disagreements are and have been the issues from the beginning of the talks including what will be the status and how will it be described, iran's right to enrich uranium. they want it explicit and written down on paper. there's been no right to enrich uranium. there may be other ways around it. we would recognize their freedom to have a peaceful nuclear program. if that's an issue, that compromise is not enough. they are still disagreeing on
4:02 pm
the status of the iraq heavy water planet. this is the second path to a bomb, using plutonium. we are down to the final words on those agreements. the final words may be so difficult to achieve they could stand in the way of a disagreement. >> they are still talking at this hour. if they fail and it falls apart for a second time, what is this going to mean for the future of these talks? >> it would be hard to explain for both sides. difficult for john kerry to come back having been here twice and the foreign ministers flying to using their clout to bring the parties together for a deal. that would be difficult to explain. in the u.s. you have a time line. members on capitol hill are pushing for sanctions otherwise it will spoil the chances for talks. they feel they can only push it off for some time. the senate democratic leader may introduce a vote on sanctions
4:03 pm
after the thanksgiving break. it's a couple weeks from now. that's on the american side. difficult there. difficult for the iranian minister to go home and sell to a skeptical population and hard liners that it's worth talking to the americans. they feel they are giving up a lot. it would be difficult to explain. it may be why they are working so late into the night and later to find a resolution. >> try to overt what could be a difficult conversation in both places. jim, thanks so much. we'll stay in touch. in diplomatic circles, there's no agreement on what is the best resolution to the nuclear situation with iran. do we gaucnegotiate or keep on pressure? stay there. in a couple minutes, we'll continue that conversation. two guests will join us from washington and we'll get more on that. china disputed over eight
4:04 pm
islands. beijing is creating what it calls an air defense identification zone and it just happened to include the sky over the islands. defense secretary chuck hagel calls it an attempt to alter the status quo. barbara starr joins me now on the phone. how dangerous is this move by beijing? >> caller: good evening, martin. one measure of how dangerous it is, very unusual, rare public statements on a saturday night in washington from defense secretary chuck hagel and secretary of state, john kerry in geneva on those iran talks issuing a statement, very concerned about china's latest moves. this air exclusion is what they are talking about. basically, it's going to require the chinese any military aircraft flying through the area which is an international air
4:05 pm
space, by all accounts, to basically radio the chinese government, state their position, aircraft, what they are doing and where they are going, all of it. that is not going to work for the united states. chuck hagel already indicating the u.s. has no intention of going down this road. it appears to be an effort to intimidate japan over the islands. it adds to destabilization throughout the region and it's very concerning to the united states about what the chinese might do if somebody doesn't obey the new rules. that's the question, what's going to happen next. >> you have the concern that, you know, an accident of some sort could have huge military consequences. how is this going to change u.s. operations in that region? >> caller: hagel says he put the marker down tonight on behalf of the united states and the u.s. military saying that the u.s. will not change in any way how it operates in the pacific.
4:06 pm
so, if it wants to fly through this zone, it will. by all indications. the u.s. has been upping its military position in the pacific. they call it that asia pivot. what it's really about is more u.s. military presence in the pacific rim to counter china, to have a military presence there. the bottom line for everybody, this is the new economic powerhouse and they don't want to see military destabilization. the chinese move is concerning because it's so unclear what they may be up to here, u.s. officials believe. >> it could be a dangerous chess game. thank you for joining us from washington. nice to hear from you. okay, timing could not be worse. just in time for one of the busiest travel weeks of the year, a powerful weather system moving across the country. rain, snow and powerful winds are creating problems in a

4:11 pm
it's been the top international issue all day on cnn. a compromise with iran on the nuclear program is very, very close. secretary of state john kerry is in switzerland now in the wee hours of the morning and it's still going on, but no agreement in this country an whether we should be negotiating. joining me, professor from american university, the author of going to thai ron. why to go to terms with iran. and the president for security and the former pentagon official under president ronald reagan. i'm trying to get your thoughts on where things stand. hillary, what do you make of this? >> they are very close. closer than they have been in over a decade. i'm not that optimistic and i think it will come down to whether or not the united states and its so-called allies can recognize iran's right to enrich the rights as a sovn country.
4:12 pm
i'm not sure the united states can do it. they are driving toward negotiation, i'm not sure they can seal the deal. >> i'm with hillary. i'm getting a feeling they are not going to do it. what is your feeling? >> you could be right. one of my experiences of negotiating in these kinds of settings a long time ago now is if you want it bad, you get it bad. the idea, i think most americans can appreciate this. the idea they are going to spend the night thrashing around with iranians and the good outcome is going to be achieved is unlikely. it's not because they might not come to terms on this point, but because the rest of the deal is lousy. a couple quick points. one is, i believe the united states is being lied to by its president about what is going on here. we have seen the same problem with obama care. this is national security. >> wait a minute.
4:13 pm
let me break it down. we'll go into this. hold on. we'll go into it. let me start with this point, it seems to be the sticking point. iran is not budging on the demand to maintain the capability to enrich uranium. the worst case is iran keeps that capability. frank, how do you see that? >> this is not the point. the point is, iran is going to maintain all they need to maintain an active and, i'm afraid, nearly complete nuclear weapons program. the idea these negotiations on one point or another are hanging in the balance misses entirely the fundamental, which is we cannot trust the iranians. they made it clear. he's about buying time to complete their ambitions that have been under way for decades.
4:14 pm
we are kidding ourselves. we are at the point that we are being deceived by our own government. no good deal can come out of this, certainly not from our securities point of view or that region or the wider free world. >> let me talk about frank's point here. he raises a good issue. it's been the policy of the iranians to delay, delay, delay. i have to say, it's sounding like we are seeing that again. you say it's essential that the u.s. negotiate. >> yeah, i mean, i have real experience negotiating with the iran yans. when i worked for the bush white house, i was one of the few negotiators that negotiated with the iranians in afghanistan and al qaeda. a highly successful negotiation including with the prime minister in geneva trying to get a deal. we are not going to trust them or like the republic. the ant ek dote is how do you
4:15 pm
get to an agreement with transparency? to actually agree to, adhere to an additional protocol to the treaty, this is what could actually get us to a negotiated outcome. the problem people have, the countries that will not recognize iran's rights under the united states, france, israel and saudi arabia. the problem i have is that it would recognize the islamic republic as a legitimate power. the united states, the problem for us is that after president obama's failed attempt at a debac debacle, he has to do it diplomatically. it's negotiated under a treaty. >> let me stop you. frank, let me ask you think, is the military option or what is
4:16 pm
the option if it's not negotiation? >> look, we are dealing with a regime and with all due respect to hillary and her negotiations, this is an outfit that for decades has been at war with us. we pretend it's not the case, but it is. despite her negotiations, they are supporting al qaeda, including during 9/11. they will make every effort to deceive us. it's not a matter of trance parn si, we know they are lying. >> frank, i understand, what is the alternative? >> i'm afraid the alternative has to be regime change in iran. we have an option to work with the people of iran who seek that same outcome. the efforts of the bush administration and this administration to tie us to this regime instead of to the people of iran is madness. it is creating a much more dangerous iran and, i believe, a much more dangerous world. this idea of a negotiated outcome and getting to it, getting to a deal, this is
4:17 pm
beside the point. if you are dealing with people who you know have your destruction in their sort of central -- >> frank, hillary -- hold on, please. hold on, please. i'm sorry, we have come to the end of the time we can allow for this. thank you both. we appreciate it. hillary and frank, we appreciate your insights, the negotiations are continuing at this hour in geneva. we will be back to talk. so, with chevy's black friday sale, the price you see is the price you pay? yep, best prices of the year. i can't see. honey.
